Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Knives: Crime (15 Dec 2015)

Andrew Selous: Section 28 of the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 provides for a minimum custodial sentence for a second (or further) conviction for possession of a knife or offensive weapon. This provision was commenced by the Government on 17 July 2015 and applies to those offenders who committed a second offence after this date. The latest quarterly sentencing bulletin for knife possession offences...

Scotland Bill: Committee (1st Day) (8 Dec 2015)

Lord Keen of Elie: In view of the time, no. Amendment 11 would clearly impact on the ability of the United Kingdom Parliament to make laws for Scotland. To that extent, it would modify Section 28(7) of the 1998 Act. The effect of that amendment could be interpreted as an attempt to limit the sovereignty of this Parliament, a point that I believe the noble Lord, Lord Stephen, acknowledged, and the Government...

Scottish Parliament: Named Persons (2 Dec 2015)

Nigel Don: I want to take members back to the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, as passed. Section 19(5) of the 2014 act sets out the functions of the named person. I will pick them out from several different lines in subsection (5). They include: “advising, informing or supporting the child or young person, or a parent ... helping the child ... to access a service or support ......

Consumer Protection (Standards of Fire Resistance of Children’s Fancy Dress and Play Costumes Etc): New Clause 16 — Compensation for an illegal working closure notice where order is cancelled/ no compliance order is made (1 Dec 2015)

James Brokenshire: ...and effective system consistent with our obligation is absolutely consistent with the themes redolent in paragraphs (b) to (e) of new clause 13. The difference is that I believe that having a 28-day time period does not advance the cause. It is a blunt instrument that does not take account of the full range of different circumstances that are redolent here from foreign national offenders...

Safety in Deep Sea Diving: Stephen O’Malley (25 Nov 2015)

Louise Ellman: ...was too tight. I have a neckdam with me here, and I think it is clear to see how it is designed to sit closely on the neck. If it fits too tightly, however, there can be horrendous consequences. I repeat that Stephen’s first distress call came less than two minutes into the dive, as he complained that his neckdam was too tight: “I can’t breathe with the neckdam. It’s choking me....

Enterprise Bill [HL] — Report (1st Day) (25 Nov 2015)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...Amendments 8 and 9 not moved. Clause 6: Reports on complaints Amendment 10 not moved. Amendment 11 Moved by Lord Stoneham of Droxford 11: After Clause 6, insert the following new Clause— “Repeated complaints: late payments (1) Where— (a) the Commissioner determines that a particular respondent has been the subject of repeated complaints relating to the late payment of invoices, (b)...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Schedule 6 - Support for certain categories of migrant (10 Nov 2015)

James Brokenshire: ...against the decision; or acceptance, and the person is granted leave to remain in the UK. Only about 15% of cases are granted leave to remain. Most are found to be without merit and often merely repeat matters already considered and rejected by the immigration judge who dealt with the asylum appeal. Under existing arrangements, section 4(2) of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 is used to...

European Union Referendum Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (4 Nov 2015)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: My Lords, in my opening speech to this group of amendments I set out the Government’s position on Section 125 of PPERA and Clause 6 of the EU Referendum Bill. This is a complicated group of amendments, so I suggest that I take them sequentially as much as possible. I will further elucidate the position on Clause 6. In particular, the amendment tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Kerr of...

Energy Bill [HL]: Report (1st Day) (19 Oct 2015)

Baroness Worthington: My Lords, in moving Amendment 11 I shall speak also to Amendments 27 and 28 and to government Amendment 26, which is in this group. The Government’s Amendment 26 is a welcome concession. It is obviously a response to the debate held during the passage of the Bill where a number of noble Lords from different sides of the House raised the very important issue of whether the OGA’s powers,...

LGBTI Citizens Worldwide — Motion to Take Note (17 Sep 2015)

Lord Paddick: ...to make the same progress that we have. As my noble friend Lady Barker said, it was not long ago that we had legislation similar to that which we are complaining about in other countries, such as Section 28. I pay tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Fowler, not just for his lifelong work on HIV and AIDS, but for his work against prejudice and discrimination of all kinds. I also thank the noble...

European Union Referendum Bill (Programme) (No. 2): European Union Referendum Bill (7 Sep 2015)

Owen Paterson: ...was tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Stone, and which I have signed. It is worth noting that the Electoral Commission has stated: “We have not identified problems with the workability of section 125 of PPERA applying to governments at previous referendums, and so we think that it should be workable in relation to this referendum.” I am afraid that everything I see this evening...

Energy Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (7 Sep 2015)

Lord Whitty: .... However, the Minister has given various reassurances on that, some of which I will require some legal advice on. I am quite happy to arrange for a meeting with him or his officials. However, I repeat that I am very grateful that he has taken these amendments seriously and I hope that we can reach some accommodation on this. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 24 withdrawn....

Scottish Parliament: Longannet Power Station (Closure) (3 Sep 2015)

Fergus Ewing: ...a balanced, low-carbon energy mix based on renewables, flexible thermal generation—fitted with carbon capture and storage—and greater energy storage. Although we have raised our concerns repeatedly with the Prime Minister, absolutely nothing has changed. Before I outline our response to the planned closure, I want to underline the huge significance of Longannet. It is the largest power...

English Votes on English Laws — Statement (2 Jul 2015)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: My Lords, first, I thank the noble Baroness the Leader of the House for repeating the Statement. We very much welcome the fact that it is being repeated in our House, given that, as the noble Baroness, Lady Smith of Basildon, said, it clearly raises wider issues that go far beyond the Standing Orders of the House of Commons. The Statement was right to reflect on the long history of this...

European Union Referendum Bill: Clause 1 — The referendum (16 Jun 2015)

Dominic Grieve: ...our shared and gentle cynicism about the amount of froth and hyperbole that is generated in this Chamber. That said, I must politely disagree with his approach to what this Bill does with regard to section 125 of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000. I served on the Committee that considered the Bill that became that Act, and there was a lot of anxiety about the...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (2 Mar 2015)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...assist noble Lords if I provide the House with some background. The Government have been consistently clear that abortion on the grounds of gender alone is already illegal. The Department of Health repeated that in guidance issued in May 2014, and it is important to stress that all independent sector providers have agreed to comply with, and operate on the basis of, the department’s...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (4 Feb 2015)

Baroness Hamwee: ..., I, too, am bemused about whether this is a new burden or whether the cost will be nil. I do not have the impact assessment with me, but looking back at the costs that I quoted in Committee on 28 January, I see that I referred to the impact assessment estimating that the total cost of the measures for England and Wales would be around £40 million, although within that, the cost of...

Scottish Parliament: Welfare Funds (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (16 Dec 2014)

Michael McMahon: ...that will place the interim Scottish welfare fund on a statutory basis. We know from the evidence that we took that the interim fund has been a benefit to many vulnerable people across Scotland. I repeat the minister’s reference to the comparison of the scheme with the DWP fund by Scott Robertson from Quarriers, who observed: “The comparison between the new system and the previous...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (28 Oct 2014)

Lord Harris of Haringey: ...could be improved. I hope that the Government can accept that there are at least some points here that need to be looked at. The Minister then went through, as predicted, some of the various sections that we talked about. Most of them require an intent to cause distress or anxiety, or that the matter is grossly offensive, or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character. As I have said...

Public Bill Committee: Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill: Clause 29 - Sections 25 to 28 etc: supplementary (23 Oct 2014)

Ian Murray: ...move amendment 76, in clause 29, page 25, line 26, at end insert— ‘(1A) Prior to secondary legislation making or amending the regulatory provision coming into force, the review set out in sections 25 to 28 and this section shall be subject to public consultation with specific reference to the views of businesses, business organisations, civic organisations and trades unions, and...
